TrendGiveAfuck Home-Made FlipFlops! - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

You can buy Flipflops for £20 or more, brand nor just American Apparel or other mainstream shop brand. In Japan you can buy flipflops of the exact same quality for 50 pence.

Better yet, you don’t have to give a fuck about where to buy’em – just make’em yourself! I don’t have any good tools at home yet, so I started with a nice foundation of cardboard and some cloth with help from a stapler gun. I think the prototypes are captain :)

Converse Extension - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

For you who love converse. And trouseres. And prefer taking off the trousers and the shoes at the same time…

These look like they would fit The Licious:

Thong Bikini Trousers17 May 2010

Thong Bikini Trousers - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

Thong-bikini trousers… thong bikini-trousers…. my grammar fails me here. I guess I can’t focus really from the shock of this piece of clothing. This is more like: TrendWhatTheFuck?!

Ever feel you want that thong line without the bother of wearing thongs? This Brazilian invention is something for you! TROUSERS WITH BUILT-IN THONG!

The model reminds me of a Brazilian girl I once dated (prettier than the model). We had a discussion about how all the girls seem to be so comfortable in wearing string bikinis on the beach. She said rather that than being topless like so many do in Europe. Fair enough.

They trousers in blue, light blue, white and black. Click here if you fancy checking them out

The Polaroid Instant Camera is Back!14 May 2010

The Polaroid Instant Camera is Back! - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

Priced at $90, with film cost $10 for 10 pics, now in three colours (black, red, and blue), this little doll prints “business-card sized” photos instantly!

Totally new… uhm… wait a minute… acording to Engadget, this is just a rebranded Fujifilm Instax Mini 7. Boo! It doesn’t even use the same Polaroid 600 film as the classic cameras.

Lady Gaga was recently named Creative Director of one of Polaroid’s departments, with products being designed and built and on their way – let’s hope they are as classic and retro as we want them!

I am somewhat attracted to this, though… maybe because it looks like a Picasso version of a penguin…. Visit Polaroid’s site here

H&M – Fashion Against AIDS14 May 2010

H&M – Fashion Against AIDS - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

From the 20th of May, H&M will release a big “festival look” lineup, with prices from cheap to average, with 25% of the sales donated to youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects.

What’s a festival look? Well according to their press release:

“The festival look is a global trend that’s all about freedom of expression and shared experiences. Festivals are an escape from the real world, where fashion can really come to the fore. For girls this summer there’s a mix of rock with bohemia and glamour with added ethnic touches. Denim hotpants or patterned leggings are matched with embellished tunic tops, while maxi-dresses are toughened up when worn with leather jackets. Gladiator shoes, chunky bracelets, wide belts and beaded necklaces complete the look, while tribal print headphones give an extra twist.

For guys, it’s all about looking like you’re in the band, with slim blazers and jackets, faded and patched denim jeans and cropped shorts, embellished waistcoats, paisley vests and the essential rocker’s hat are all part of the picture…”

“… the collection for both guys and girls will encompass the whole festival experience, from clothes and accessories through to tents and sleeping bags, all the while raising funds to promote the message of safe sex.”

I wonder, aren’t these a bit more “freedom of expression” as a festival look? (Click)

Anyway, have fun on the festivals, and have loads of safe sex! ^_^
